Just some quick thoughts on this:

1 - If this report is true, the October 9 date truly blows as the players will only have three days to realistically train for this match. They would finish their club games on Saturday/Sunday October 3/4 and travel on late Sunday or early Monday to the location to train.
2 - MLS is going to be in the end run for the playoffs. So, how much rest are some of our key players going to have going into that week?
3 - If Mexico wins and CONCACAF go with the Rose Bowl, we can count on being the visiting team.
4 - The September friendlies are going to be extremely important now. As is the start of the season for everyone of our pool of players.

Til this day that game Panama b Mexico biggest robbery in Sports History I think most would agree.. I'm to the Confederations cup a B/ Sub 23 German in the final just shows how great they are at soccer Bundesliga is and will always be better than Epl soccer wise. Once again Germans show who is the best at development they do it both youth and senior level heck they play in another final tomorrow. When the youth success gets to the senior level they show it unlike some countries hmmm who might that be hahaha... Just saying place to go develop Bundesliga!!!!

Exactly, don't care much for Mexico's misery, which also shows where the US program is currently at compared to the elite teams.

We have to admire the German team who are gutsy enough to send U-23 side. What is scary is that they showed pretty good against almost Chile - A team, dare I say this has started with Klinsi's changes to the DFB(not my words)...
Crap we have ways to go...

germany aslo won the u21 (really u23) euro championship today... their depth is so good right now that I can't see anyone competing with them come Russia 2018. They are like the warriors of international soccer right now. There is no reason they shouldnt be hosting another world cup in 12 and a half months... Their talent is unbelievable.

How do you guys feel about France? I don't think they're too far behind Germany. I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if France is raising the World Cup next summer.

France is France's own worst enemy. All too often they implode because the characters in the side don't mesh. If they get the formula right they will be tough.

come on france is good but almost every position, if not every position including coach they are worse than germany... Right now its germany and everyone else. Chile has won the last two copa americas, and we are questioning whether they can beat the german b team that might send 6 to 7 players to the world cup. If Germany doesn't win next summer it will be a major upset.

Argentina is still around and have more than enough to win it. But idk why no one has mentioned Brazil their playing at a whole different level that's why their ranked #1 in the world. There's a good amount of teams that can win it next year. Should be a great competitive WC remember there are always upsets to. Can't wait!!!

Germany win the final with their B team.

Mexican loses to Portugal. I wonder if Osorio is on his way out.
